Braided Radiator Hoses

Got the winter project finished:

Motor plate

Electric fuel pump

braided steel radiator hoses


I used the Spectre braided steel hoses from Summit.  These hoses were a major pain in the ass!

Hard as hell to get on the radiator/water pump nipples.  Hose slightly too small and no give to it at all.  Forget about using the fancy looking clamp covers, had to go get regular hose clamps.

If I had it to do all over again I would do -AN connectors on the radiator, pump and motor plate and just use AN fittings on smaller diameter hoses.

Great job....  and I hope this means that winter is officially over now! :)

I wish it was.  Currently 25 degrees in Central Texas, and looking at teens tomorrow :-(  no racing for a while... :angry:

Nice job.


I buy all my braided hose from Wirecare.com. They have every color and style of braided hose covers for radiator hoses and wire harnesses. Very quality material and good prices. You can also get hose ends that make it look like real braided hose.

Here are some pics of what I did with their products.

UPDATE: after 3 trips to the track I can report that there have been no leaks or problems, and the electric water pump cools the motor down very quickly in the pits!
